The Weekender Sweater Kit


IMPORTANT: To order, choose Shade first (while in the smallest size 1), then choose your size.

Andrea Mowry's Weekender Sweater has become an iconic knit. We've knit up a few of them, and particularly like this rendition out of Wool Addicts Water. This yarn creates a light, airy, yet warm layer for all seasons! We knit our main body on size US 8 needles (the pattern calls for US 9) and found the fit and fabric to work very well. Our sample is a size 3 and we used just into 7 skeins of Water. Link to more details about our sample here.

This kit includes all the yarn you will need for your chosen size and The Weekender pattern. Put in code WEEKENDER at checkout for 15% off this kit!

US 7 - 4.5 mm (for tubular cast on, which I did not do in this yarn), US 8 - 5.0 mm, US 9 - 5.5 mm. However, I used US 7 for ribbing and US 8 for the main body!
